Jacob and Amelia
After establishing Corvallis Battery in Jacob's hometown and successfully growing the business, Jacob and Amelia were ready to expand and start a new adventure in Central Oregon. They moved to Bend and opened Bend Battery in August of 2015 and moved to a larger location in 2020 where they are currently located.
Skiing, kayaking, biking and camping in the beautiful backdrop of Central Oregon has been a highlight of their move to Bend and to be surrounded by customers that value those same things was the encouragement they needed to enjoy all that Bend has to offer.
They look forward to expanding the business to provide more jobs and availability to continue their impact on their community through planning and problem solving to get their customers out on the road and enjoying their next adventure.
Taylor attended OSU Cascades, and studied in the Energy Systems Engineering program. While there he took courses in Energy Consumption, Distribution, Storage, Conversion, Policy, and Business Management. After joining the team at Bend Battery in 2018, he completed several training courses with Victron Energy, and received certificates for Advanced System Design and Programming, Battery Chemistry and Fundamentals, and Total Product Knowledge.
When not at work, you will often find Taylor being the life of the party at his favorite local breweries, and attending community events with his girlfriend Rachel, and their bulldog Boe.
